I haven't had to get an inspection sticker since ours last two years, but the couple places I go to probably won't have a problem with them, as long as they blink lol

Signal lenses and quad exhaust look SHARP!!! Super classy build man, it's unique yet looks like it could have come from the factory that way. (a trait that I personally love in a custom build)

Well done!

Pretty excited, just ordered my Showstopper LED Sidemarkers. I was going to make them myself, but showstopper's are only $50 more than all the stuff you need to make the diy, not to mention the time to go into it. I also like the look of the LED strip on top.

Pete gave me a deal in exchange for giving him some pics, so hopefully Ill be featured on the site!

Showstopper = $250 (350-100 core charge)

DIY:
LEDs = $133
Paint/Clear/Promoter/Primer = $45 (from automotivetouchup.com)
Misc Materials (tape,sandpaper) = $10
Connectors = $12
TOTAL: $200

Not ghosted, but I like the look of the showstopper unghosted, I don't like the AAC version unghosted, since the LEDs are in the center. Showstopper a follow the lines. I also can always ghost them later if I want.
The rear ones will blend in anyway since its red, would only have to ghost the front section little strip

Holy Crap using Fbodfather's figures for 2012,


So out of all the cars built:

68.66% of All SS's were Auto V8s (18,790 Auto / 27,365 total)
18.47% of total were 2SS (16,682 2SS coupe / 90,310 total)
3.54% of 2SS's were beige leather (591 Beige / 16,682 total 2SS)
0.65% of TOTAL were Beige Leather 2SS models
2.88% of total were Crystal Red (2,606 CRT/ 90,310 total)


2012 RS breakdown by trim isnt avail for RS, so i used 2011.
for 2011, 62.88% of Total had the RS package (67,272 Total RS / 106,987 Total)
For 2011, 47.14% of RS packages were 2SS (31,713 2SS/RS / 67,272 Total RS)


For 2012:
52.29% of Total had the RS Package (47,221 Total RS / 90,310 Total)
22,260 Of RS packages were (probably) 2SS ( 47,221 Total RS x 47.14% 2011 2SS/RS total= 22260)

90.86% of 2SS's were (probably) RS (22,260 2SS/RS / 24,498 Total 2SS)



Which makes mine:

0.65% of the total Camaros were Beige Leather 2SS's
68.66% of those were probably Automatic
= 0.44% are Auto, Beige Leather, 2SS's


2.88% of those were Crystal Red tintcoat
= .00012672% of all camaros are CRT, Auto, Beige Leather, 2SS's


90.86% of those had the RS package
= .000115137% of all 2012 camaros are CRT, Auto, Beige Leather, 2SS/RS's


90,310 x .000115137% = 10.39


My car is probably 1 in 11.



The only thing I cant be sure of, is the color, the color is for all cars. So if the proportion is off from CRT/All Cars and CRT/Beige 2SS's, then it could be higher or lower

Hahahah, you're probably right! and all the beige auto's have women drivers except mine .

My first 4th gen was VR with the beige/black interior. My second 4th gen I changed every piece in the interior to black and didnt like it, so i made the seats dark gray/black. The beige is two tone enough that the beige isnt crazy. But the gray seats make the carpet gray so I didnt want that.

And I had to time ordering CRT just right, you only had a few week window to order them, cause they were only being built for a month or two as a 2012 model, and it takes a few weeks to actually build them so I got lucky on that.

figuring out how i want to paint my steering wheel. Since it is the easiest out of all the interior parts to paint and i still havent figured out if I cant paint the door panels and dash trim from the inside. I dont want to paint them from the outside.

So im pretty set on the trim for the steering wheel, but dont know about the bowtie.

And I dont know if I want to do flat black, or a dark gray to sort of match the plastic yet. I want everything on the steering wheel to have a matte finish

Just read through your entire build thread. You have an awesome car. I will be putting quad exhaust on my car pretty soon. I love the way it looks on your car and you're right 4" tips look really good.

Keep up the modding.

Absolutely no complaints, holding up just like vinyl on the hood, or vinyl decals on the calipers would.

None of it is peeling up, as long as you prep well its good. I think your wheels are even easier, dont they have a flat spot on the edge to put it on? The stock RS rims have a rounded edge.
